I don't go on here much because I drive a '92 Civic now. But hey, it's eligible for collector plates! Many states allow you to put collector plates on a second car if it's over 20 or 25 years old.

This site has three rules, and they're printed in bold at the top of each page. Let's go through them.

Japanese- It must be made by a Japanese company.

Nostalgic- There is some grey area, but most US States agree 25+ year old cars qualify.

Car (or, now, Motorcycle)- It must be a powered, wheeled transportation device.

A 1988 Toyota Camry is completely eligible on all fronts. So is a 1938 Datsun 17.

Look up "Classic Car" in Wikipedia. There is enough elitism to pull apart the rest of car culture. It's Japanese. Nostalgic. Car. Not, "whichever cars I feel are popular or valuable". Not, "the cars before this arbitrary date". Not, "the manual transmission rear wheel drive sports coupes produced between 1967 and 1971".

Pull your heads out of your asses and be grown-ups about this.

this does get difficult as the late 80s roll in to 25 years.

I used to define it as carbed or analog, but even an 83 gt-r attempted injection.

I was just finding this evening, I have an eleventh digit never written in the vin code for an 87 dual range Subaru.

The letter E is skipped in their history, yet it is in my VIN. It means dual range 5 speed apparently.

mystery ought to be welcome as well...25 years now has a lot of confusing things, right into the early 90s.
the b-rally to A rally rules is 25 years this year. That was quite a bomb on all Asian, euro and even American.
it should be fun. I still have fun.

This is the most sensible, coherent thing boxer3main has ever said. Pretty much sums up exactly what JNC is about.
